## Can Desmos graph absolute value?

If your institution has a paid Desmos upgrade, you may be able to add Desmos item types to your item bank. Click the Question Type drop-down menu [1], and select the Absolute Value Question option [2].

## How do you find the equation of an absolute value graph?

For absolute value equations multiplied by a constant (for example,y=a| x |),if 01, it is stretched. Also, if a is negative, then the graph opens downward, instead of upwards as usual. More generally, the form of the equation for an absolute value function is y=a| x−h |+k.

**How do I solve absolute value equations?**

To solve an equation containing absolute value, isolate the absolute value on one side of the equation. Then set its contents equal to both the positive and negative value of the number on the other side of the equation and solve both equations. Solve | x | + 2 = 5.

### How do you do absolute value?

Absolute Value Examples and Equations The most common way to represent the absolute value of a number or expression is to surround it with the absolute value symbol: two vertical straight lines. |6| = 6 means “the absolute value of 6 is 6.” |–6| = 6 means “the absolute value of –6 is 6.”

### How do you write an absolute value function?

– 2x−5| = 9 | 2 x − 5 | = 9 – |1 −3t| = 20 | 1 − 3 t | = 20 – |5y−8| = 1 | 5 y − 8 | = 1

**How do you find the absolute value of a graph?**

Introduction.

#### How to graph the absolute value of a function?

– The absolute value graph depicts the distance of a number from the origin. – The graph of the absolute value function is symmetric about the y y -axis. – The graph of the absolute value function makes a right angle at the origin. – Absolute value function is an even function because f(x) = f(−x) f ( x) = f ( − x).

#### How do you graph absolute value on a graphing calculator?

with absolute value, the positive domain of x would be the same as f (x) = x and the negative domain of x would be the same as f (x) = – x. This creates the V shape of absolute value.
